BALTIMORE (AP) — Major League Baseball could have a new commissioner as soon as Thursday. Outgoing Commissioner Bud Selig (SEE’-lihg) says the succession process has worked just the way he thought it would.

Baseball’s 30 owners will meet in Baltimore this week to vote on Selig’s replacement. A seven-man committee whittled down an expansive list to three candidates: MLB Chief Operating Officer Rob Manfred, Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner and Tim Brosnan, MLB Vice President of Business.

To win Thursday’s vote, a candidate must receive approval from 23 of 30 owners.
